Never in my life have I been embarrassed to be an American; however, at least for now, I am. I still cannot believe I live in a country that elected a self-admitted, pathologically dishonest sociopath and traitor as president. A man who’s so mentally unhinged he had to have his Twitter access taken away from him in the days leading up to the election out of fear that he might say something that would hurt his chances at victory.
While I never said it couldn’t happen, in the back of my mind I always had enough faith in Americans that I never thought it would.
But you know what, fine. Republicans, you wanted Donald Trump, well, you f*cking got him.
It kills me to think of the fear millions of Americans are feeling right now, but there’s also another part of me that says, you know what, I’m glad these Trump people are getting exactly what they wanted. If these knuckle-dragging, vile, racist, bigoted, ignorant bottom-feeding morons want a Trump presidency — a real Trump presidency (not those bullshit lies he sold during his campaign), then that’s exactly what they’re about to get — sponsored by Russia.
While all these Trump supporters celebrate electing the most shameful candidate in this country’s history, they’re about to learn that they won’t be able to “meme” their way through just how awful the next four years are going to be. There’s no conspiracy blog that’s going to be able to spin the disaster that’s about to engulf the United States. There’s not going to be any denying what an absolute embarrassment Donald Trump is going to be for this country.
The GOP put party over country… that’s fine. They elected the man who’s going to spend the next four years not only wreaking havoc in this country, but destroying their party, as well. If they thought Trump the “GOP presidential nominee” was a dumpster fire — just wait.
As the saying goes, “be careful what you wish for.” Well, that’s never been more true than right now.
For decades the Republican party has pandered to the worst parts of our society. The racists, the bigots, the prejudiced, the hateful, the ignorant — and they finally won. After over a half century of appealing to some of the most deplorable people in this country, Republicans elected the exact type of candidate people like David Duke, the KKK and white nationalists have been hoping for.
Donald Trump is the culmination of decades of right-wing hate, lies, conspiracies and propaganda finally succeeding. A person who is such an unbelievable disgrace, even his own party did its best to keep as distant from him as possible because they were terrified of what aligning too closely with him might do to their own careers.
The GOP elected a man it didn’t want as its nominee, was ashamed to fully embrace as its candidate and was seemingly hoping that he wouldn’t win because even many Republicans know that he’s woefully unfit and unqualified to be president.
However, because the party was too spineless to stand up to him out of fear of the backlash they might face from his supporters (and Trump, himself), this country will now be forced to endure four years of his incompetence while being mocked and humiliated all over the world.
But it’s fine, I’m going to keep fighting for what I think is right to make this country better and defend the rights for millions of Americans you all constantly seem to try to disenfranchise. I fully plan to use the incompetence of Donald Trump to expose the true pathetic nature that lies at the heart of the Republican party. Every single day I’m going to use him as a prime example — because he’s going to get me plenty of them — as to why we can never let your party win again. Every stupid, hateful, bigoted, prejudiced or ignorant thing he says or does I’m going to embrace as yet another tool I can use to shed even more light on the true nature of conservatism and the GOP. Then when people finally start to truly realize what a mistake electing him was, I’m going to make damn sure they know which party backed him and who the Republicans were who stood behind him no matter how disgusting the things he said were, or how deplorable he behaved.
I will not let the Republican party bring this orange nightmare upon us, then try to wash their hands of him once he gets exposed as the sociopathic con man people like myself knew he was from the very beginning.
So, by all means, celebrate now. The truth is, I’ve never been more proud of not being a Republican than I am at this very moment. I would have much rather not seen Donald Trump win this election, but I am beyond ecstatic that I’m not one of the people who voted for him who’s going to have to defend this moron for the next four years.
Republicans, you wanted Donald Trump, well — you f*cking got him.
Enjoy and — good luck with that. You’re going to need it.
